The William B. Travis "Victory or Death " letter
On February 24, 1836, William B. Travis wrote a letter requesting help because they were surrounded by Santa Anna's enemy forces.
After writing to the people of Texas, news traveled fast about this very document.
The distance and obstacles slowed down the many volunteers that were on their way.
Travis knew the power of poetry and purposely chose to write " All Americans in the World " to fuel the patriotism.
At the time Spain granted independence to Mexico in 1821, comprising the state of Texas was very populated
Stephen Austin led 300 American families onto land granted to his father by the Mexican Government
Story of William B. Travis drawing a line in the sand
Annex is a part of a building or an addition to a main structure, it can also be an attachment.
Sometimes annex is used as a nice word for "Take" or "grab".
It is also to add a territory to one's own territory
Mexican troops under President Lopez assaulted on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Bexar.

The Texians defeated the Mexican army at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 31, 1836.
The Republic of Texas won its
independence on April 21, 1836,
with a final battle along the
San Jacinto River.
On March 6 Mexican troops scaled
the mission’s walls;
183 defenders were killed,
including several Mexicans who had fought for
Texas independence, and their oil-soaked bodies were
set on fire outside the Alamo.
On October 9,1835 the Mexican army was attacked by Texas settlers at Presidio La Bahía, Goliad.
Only one mexican soldier was killed and 3 were wounded while one Texan was just injured.
Therefor, Texas has won the victory.
Sam Houston was an American
soldier and a politician.
Known for bringing Texas in to the United
States as a constituent state.
His victory of the Battle of San Jacinto
secured Texas from Mexico.
Houston was the only American who was elected to be governor of two different states.
He refused a decision that led to his
removal from office by the Texas secession
In the morning on March 6th the Mexican army advanced on the Alamo, after repulsing two attacks, the Texians were unable to fend off the third attack of the Mexican army.

Texians may or may not have surrendered, but most witnesses said that about 220 Texians died, while historians agreed that at least 600 Mexicans were either dead or wounded.
The battle of San Jacinto was fought on April 21 led by Sam Houston.

The fight only lasted just 20 minutes.

About 630 of the Mexican soldiers were killed and 730 captured, while only nine Texans died.

The Texans had taken victory once again.

March 5, 1836- William B. Travis knew their situation was hopeless
He got all the defenders and gave speech
He drew a line saying that whoever would stay and die in battle with him had to cross that line over to him
Wanting to promote Texas's growth, the Spanish offered vast tracts of land who bring their families to settle on the land. The people who obtained these grants and recruited settlers were called impresarios.
By 1830 Americans in Texas far outnumbered Mexicans and the American settlers had adopted Mexican ways.
In 1833 the Mexican president, General Antonio L'opez de Santa Anna, agreed to remove the ban on American settlers.
Santa Anna became a dictator and overthrew Mexican's constitution
During 1835 unrest grew among Texans and occasionally resulted in open conflict
Despite the victories, the Texans encountered problems. With the Mexican withdrawal, some Texans left San Antonio, thinking the war was won.
On December 29, 1845, Texas officially became a state of the United States.
When the battle of Alamo ended at 6:30 on March 6th, about 250 Texians who were sent from the Alamo mission were alive.

As the Mexican army passed by San Antonio several of the Alamo defenders brought their families into Alamo to keep them safe.
